“It was a really fun experience for us, and 100 percent we would all go play at the Troubadour if someone wanted us to,” Riley Keough — who stars as Daisy Jones in Amazon Prime’s “Daisy Jones & The Six” miniseries based off the book of the same name — told Jess Cagle and Julia Cunningham during an exclusive interview on Radio Andy.

Back in January, ahead of the Emmy Awards, Riley had shared a snippet of rehearsal video on Instagram where she, Sam Claflin, and the rest of the TV show’s band were preparing for what looked like live concert performances. Unfortunately, the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes put that on an indefinite pause.

“Things kept coming up and we couldn’t do it, and then I think just enough time passed and the awards season ended and it just felt kind of like there wasn’t really a purpose to it, I suppose,” Riley explained to Jess and Julia. “But I think that, yeah, we all love each other so much. We would rehearse for fun if we could. We’re all working.”

The band did release an 11-track studio album, “Aurora,” with songs from the series. It reached the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Top Soundtracks chart and peaked at No. 47 on the Billboard 200.

Riley currently stars in the Hulu miniseries “Under the Bridge” alongside Chloe Guidry and Lily Gladstone.
